What to take to Sumatra

Post New Topic

I will be working in Sumatra for 4 months
I am trying to work out what to take with me and what to buy there.
I have heard that the repellents you can buy in Indonesia may not be as effective as the ones we get in Australia
Will I be able to buy decent repellent, sunscreen, hand sanitiser, bleach (for cleaning) etc over there
Or should I take it with me?
Also will I be able to buy a WHO certified bed net?

Is there anything else you recommend I take that I might not be able to find over there?
Thanks
